As well as an awesome Aussie BBQ lunch you will get the chance to taste Aussie snacks like Tim Tams, Vegemite, kangaroo & allow guests to byo whatever they wish to consume with their lunch.
Insta: Coastwarriors

This tour is organised and run by locals who have lived in the Blue Mountains all their life taking you to only the best places that can be fit in in a full day tour. This full day Blue Mountains tour is exactly that, we do not attend non relevant zoos, boats etc. Scenic World has also been removed from our itinerary as it wasn't well received by our customer base.  
This adventure commences early from Sydney with a meet and greet at the pickup point. You then have a bit over an hour to acquaint yourself with the group on the bus ride heading to the outskirts of Sydney.
Once you hit the start of the Blue Mountains there is a quick stop at a local shopping village where you can have a quick toilet/food/drinks stop before heading all the way up to the amazing Three Sisters rock formations. After taking photos of the Three sisters and jaw dropping Jamison Valley we then take you on a bushwalk right up to the three sisters and even onto one of the rock formations.
We then progress further into the mountains to Wentworth Falls where your guide will take the group for a 90 min hike through the bush where you will see local fauna, bird life and see several waterfalls on your hike to the base of the immense Wentworth falls and even have a quick refreshing dip.
All that sightseeing makes people hungry so the group will relocate to a nearby area where we cook an authentic Aussie BBQ with veggies and kangaroo on the side (vegetarian/vegan options).
After lunch we continue the day of fun and head to a local and secluded waterhole where people can go swimming or lay around on the sand in the sun deep within the bush of the Blue Mountains. Then, you head off into the nearby National Park down a long dirt road to say hello to skippy the Kangaroo. This tour has had hundreds of 5 star reviews. We are a small and passionate option!
By now the day is getting on and we head back into Sydney with an approximate arrival time of 6:00pm. We often conclude our day together at the Central Sydney bar.

Spectacular Empress Canyon
8:45am - 4:00pm
A fantastic abseiling/canyon combination, one of the mountains best!
The first half of the day is abseiling, starting with a 5 metre high cliff and building up to 30 metre high cliffs during the morning.
After lunch, it's a scenic 20 minute walk to the start of the canyon. You wade into the creek that descends into the narrow slot-like canyon and within a few seconds you are jumping into a rock pool, the first of several jumps and swims. This canyon is an exciting affair with water jumps, exhilarating swims, waterslides and fantastic scenery.
The final abseil out of the canyon is one of the best waterfall abseils in the mountains. Clip into the rope, step back and follow the 30 metre waterfall down to the deep rock pool below. This is not just a brilliant waterfall abseil but also a fantastic photo opportunity.

Arrive at our office at 8.45am.
We do all the necessary paperwork.
We then go to our gear room, where we get you organised with helmets, harnesses and wet suits.
Once organised we jump into one of our 14 seater buses and head out to the abseiling location.

We change out of our clothes into our wet suites and put our clothes into a dry bag and canyon pack which is provided for you.
Once in the canyon its all water jumps and swims.
When we get to the end of the canyon we set the ropes up at the top of the waterfall and "down we go"
We spend a bit of time at the bottom of the falls then its a 25 to 35 minute uphill hike back to the vehicle.
Arrive back at the office generally by 4.30 for a well deserved beer or soft drink.

$270.00 AUD Book
close
7:00am - 5:00pm
Rocky Creek is one of the most magnificent Blue Mountains canyons and is regarded by insiders as a "must do".
A short 10 minute walk leads you to Twister Canyon. After wetsuits are fitted the fun begins. This canyon is also known as Sheep Dip. You literally jump into a pool, swim across and slide or jump into the next one for a total of 8 pools. It's drenching!
We then exit the canyon and follow a trail for 30 minutes through a spectacular valley lined with tree ferns and arrive at the start of Rocky Creek. This canyon is of a completely different nature. 70 metre high walls tower overhead and many tunnel swims, waterfall scrambles and rock slides takes us to the sunshine at the end.
We actually reverse this canyon to the start. From here a 30 minute walk takes us back to the vehicles.

We meet bright and early at our office in Katoomba at 7 am (Due to the early start we strongly suggest that you stay in Katoomba the night before)
We do all the introductions and paper work.
We then head down to our gear room where we get organised with all the equipment.
Once that's done we jump into one of the High and Wild vehicles and its an hour drive to a remote part of the National park.
The walk into the canyon is quite short and once there we get into the wet suits, your clothes go into a dry bag and canyon pack.
Then it's water jump after water jump after water jump.
When we get to the end of Twister canyon we walk through a stunning fern lined valley.
We normally have lunch at this spot.
We pre-make the lunch at the office
